governing or working with joe biden. that's big tension right now for him. >> ted cruz and company from that tea party group that you just mentioned, they have not formally endorsed senator mcconnell now that bevins is in the race. you know, to that point, maria, we used to make fun of the house because we said, you know, all those tea partiers and boehner, he can't seem to control his people, but it kind of seems like that brand of crazy is starting to find its way into the senate. >> very much so. but the difference between senate and house is that senate realizes it still does need to be legislated. they did pass the farm bill and sent it back to the house. same thing with the budget and with immigration. it is still very much on the house site to learn how to legislate and recognizing their role in order to not just make sure they continue working but also because they realize they may have a shot at regaining the senate in 2014. and more importantly a shot at white house. that's not the dysfunction right now, seeping through the republican party on the house side, doesn't just past

, current federal law already contains a safety valve proposed i might add, but then senator joe biden. that safety valve allows the judge without any motion from the prosecution to go below a mandatory minimum if the defendant comes clean about all that he is doing, if this crime has not involved violence, if he has a relatively low criminal history. so we have that. and the third current method for getting a below a mandatory minimum sentence is a motion made by the prosecutor in exchange for the defendant's giving information about how his suppliers are, who his customers are, who else is working with him in the drug gang. >> professor, thank you. laura murphy, take my final 20 seconds. you get the final word go. ahead. >> well, 94% of the people in prison are there because of plea bargains. and most of the people who go to prison do so because they have inadequate counsel. so the attorney general addressed that too. but the attorney general made a great change in government policy. the war on drugs is a failure. it leads to huge racial disparities. it leads to expensive. >> thank y

that, though, on wednesday, vice president joe biden, according to u.s. senior officials, was up on capitol hill briefing lawmakers, key lawmakers, on a variety of threats, including what is happening right now at these embassies. a senior u.s. official did say to reporters that part of that briefing did cover what that official called immediate threats, and the white house officials have been saying that the president has known about this threat for some time. it's probably better to assume that they've known about this longer than that meeting with the yemeni president, candy. >> right. probably, they discussed it. thanks so much, jim acosta. becky anderson, abu dhabi, barbara starr. i hope you both and all will stick with us. we want to move on to republican senator lindsey graham of south carolina. senator, first, as you watch this unfold, what does it -- what is your general impression here? this looks -- if you're an ordinary american, looks pretty scary. >> well, i had a briefing with the vice president. it is scary. al qaeda's on the rise in this part of the world. the ns

to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d

and creates a task force for the middle-class. joe biden headed that because he is very upper class. even obama began shifting focus from the working class and the poor to lower middle class so i think who he is appealing to while he was campaigning originally in his first term to average earners after the great recession. the mortgage crisis. a lot of us were hurt. it didn't matter if you were in upper-middle-class you got hurt by the mortgage crisis as well. for him to get elected he started appealing towards wealthier people than he had in his first term. so where are we now? we are still at the one top% of households own one third of the total private health. it's staggering 5% of americanamerican s account for war than one third of consumer purchases. this idea of the bell curve of the post-war years does not exist anymore. regardless of your political inclinations. if you look at these numbers i'm not sure how you can say there is a genuine middle-class. and going to wrap up. i think the rise and fall of the american middle class is one if not the biggest story of the 20 century in

she also had breakfast with joe biden yesterday morning. both meetings in a sense showed some degree of democratic unity in contrast to all the sniping between the republican establishment and the tea party in d.c. lately. what we can virtually be certain of that did not come up was a clinton connection to an investigation at the department of homeland security and some pretty complicated allegations about conflicts of interest and mismanagement of something called the e-5 visa program which specifically grants special visas to foreigner who's are willing to invest half a million dollars in the u.s., presumably to create jobs. here is the controversy now. a guy named allah hundred degree who runs that visa program has been nominated to being executive director at dhs overall. now that's in question. he intervened to help a company called gulf coast nun other than hillary clinton's brother rodham. partners and shares of virginia office building with another company called green tech which was started by terry mcauliff a very familiar name in democratic politics. he is running for gove
